Matty, Remember This?

Recommended Posts

Birthday Buck !!!!

 

Back in 2006 or 2007 on my Birthday I hit this buck, but the arrow got deflected and I was using a 2 blade Rage, and tore open the belly of the buck. I saw him walk off with the guts hanging out. I waited 4 hours, got down, found blood, and the arrow, and tracked it, I kicked him up but he was just walking. I backed out, went for lunch and returned 4 hours later, with not finding much blood, it was a sleepness night, I would rather miss then to injure a deer. So the next day Matty met up with me and was nice enough to give me a hand. He found the deer not that far from where I last saw him, bears started on his hind quarters. I was happy !!! Afterwards we had lunch at the Hainsville General Store .

 

Thanks Matty!!!!

I absolutely remember it! We used to fight like cats and dogs before that and when we finally met, I reallized you're actually a really good dude. Stupid internet! lol

 

I remember you asking if I had seen anything yet and I said no....then suddenly I heard crashing as I must have scared bears off and I almost immediately laid eyes on your buck. I really couldn't believe it. My hope was fading as I was just grid searching thru prickers at that point.

 

That was a great day in the woods though man! This next season we should get together for a bowhunt or two, maybe get my uncle out with us. Though I would have to suggest somewhere less "hilly"....that spot is a HIKE! lol

My favorite spot is 2 miles in, almost all of it is a 10 degree up hill battle but after doing for years, I've learned to appreciate it and control the sweating. I only hunt the spot once pheasant season opens up and usually see bucks so it's worth every step, nothing better than that drag downhill knowing you earned it.

:rofl:

Funny how the internet changes people through a screen but when you think about it, we ALL have a HUGE part of our lives in common. Through that other site, I've met a lot of guys/gales and everyone is good people. I'm sure there are guys that annoy me with what they write but face to face over a beer, we would be more like minded than via a keyboard. I tend to think that people are good and with that thinking, I am lucky to be surronded by good people.

Great story!

 

I hunted in Hainsville once when I was about 15 years old. All I remember is that I didn't know which way to look, there were so many deer. Wish I still had access to that property (for those of you that know Hainesville, there was/is a private airstrip on that piece).

Mack, I can tell you years ago the deer numbers where off the hook, but from 2002 till the present day the deer herd has gone way down
